Choosing the Right Law School / W&L waitlist
« on: March 18, 2009, 01:19:20 PM »
I'm on the W&L waitlist with a huge amount of people.  What are peoples' thoughts on this huge waitlist and on chances of getting off?  This also seems a huge departure from W&L's acceptance process last year.

Choosing the Right Law School / deferrer a year?
« on: February 06, 2009, 08:15:39 AM »
Does anyone have first hand knowledge of deferring a year or asking to deferrer?  I have a really unique job oppurtunity that I can only take if I put of school for a year.  Also does anyone know anything in general about how willing schools are to deferrer scholarships?  Thanks.

Choosing the Right Law School / applications left pending
« on: January 14, 2009, 07:49:13 AM »
quick question, looking through last cycle on lsn there are alot of people who leave some status' as "pending."  Alot of these are people were borderline at a particular school, so Im guessing those people were rejected or wl'd and didnt feel like announcing it.....or is that too broad an assumption (generally speaking)?

List your numbers and where you were surprised to get accepted or even wait-listed at.

Studying for the LSAT / where should I apply 3.4/161
« on: December 31, 2008, 08:29:36 AM »
Like Im sure alot of you I took the december LSAT and fell short, way way steel-toed-boot-to-the-nuts short.  I was testing (25+ times), believe it or not, in the high 160's and low 170's.  However I drastically underestimated the pure pressure during the test and forced myself into mental roadblocks and quasi-panic during the exam.  Anyways I scored a 161 (below my kaplan diagnostic in July) now like others I have to re-research schools.

Wanted some friendly input on where I should be looking.  So far I've come up with: Florida, Denver, Miami, U conn.  Going to move BU, Fordham and BC to my big reaches and target SMU and American.  Thoughts?

Law School Admissions / Timetable
« on: December 11, 2008, 09:26:38 AM »
So I have a time table issue.  Basically all my stuff is ready to go besides my December LSAT score (retook from a poor October, did significantly better in December).  My prelaw adviser tells me that even if I send apps in stating to wait for my new score alot of schools will still review my app anyways as it is technically "complete," and that I want a good first impression (I doubt they will remember me). 

He says from his experience for a retaker the best thing to do is wait until about a week before my score is out to send in apps.  So when they review me it will all be there for them at one time.

So this isnt a huge problem but I dont like letting day by day go by before I enter the pool.  Its already relatively late so Im thinking of at least waiting a bit until my apps are at full strength.

Im interested if anyone else is in the same situation or has any feeling on when I should send things in.
